The Burton Cargo Snowboard Pants are super waterproofed, have a ton of pockets for whatever knick-knacks you take to the slopes, and have an inner mesh lining that wicks away sweat. They are very classic and simple functional without bells and whistles.
Burton Cargo Snowboard Pants Review
These pants are made of nylon with a 2-layer DryRide Durashell outer-laminate. Like all of the other Burton gear that I’ve owned, they hold up incredibly well and have been my main pair of snowboarding pants this season.
The Burton Cargo Pants only have a Dryride 10,000mm waterproof rating, but I never once got wet while wearing them. I’m one of those guys that like to sit on the snow and hang out a lot (I literally sit for like half the day) and my butt was never wet. They breathe really well too. I never once got hot wearing them and the inner liner wicks the sweat away so you don’t get slimy.
They’re a simple pair of boarding pants, so they’re very light. Maybe not the lightest pair of pants that I’ve used, but I would be surprised to hear anyone complain about their weight. The Burton Cargo Pants are easy to move around in as well. I never once felt restricted while wearing them.
I really liked how the chino color actually made the pants look like a pair of chinos that you would see on the streets. If they weren’t quite as baggy, I’d venture to say that you could wear them to the office with a collared shirt on casual Friday I’m joking of course, but, man, do they look great!

I’ve worn these at mountains all around the Northeast. It hasn’t been a cold winter by our standards, but they’ve held up just fine in some icy weather. I’m used to the milder Northwest climate and it is safe to say that they’d work awesome out there as well.
I really love my Burton Cargo Pants. In my opinion, they are one of the best pants for snowboarding ($169.95). I also ski every now and then and while I don’t like the pants quite as much for skiing (I like something a little tighter), they still function brilliantly. I actually hit one of the local neighborhood hills here in Boston during the first snow for some sledding while wearing these snowboarding pants and all of the kids thought they were dope.
